Reader Enjoyment Factors:

This is an adventure story.

Content Awareness Factors:

Some of the names of things were hard to say, which throws me off when I am reading.


Young Reader Reaction

I picked it because the cover looked cool. At the beginning it seemed a bit boring, but it got better. If I had read the first book, I would have understood this one more. What I didn't like about it is that it was boring at times.

This is the first book in a fantasy trilogy that weaves Viking and Native American legends.
Educational Themes:

There are elements of Viking tradition and folktales woven throughout the book.
